Varnish is a web app accelerator, which has been gaining a lot of popularity in recent years, because it can increase the loading speed of any website, sometimes even by 100%, depending on the content. This tool is sometimes called an HTTP reverse proxy as well and is used to decrease the overall load on the physical machine and to improve the browsing speed for the site visitors. Every time a visitor accesses a page on a certain Internet site, the web browser request is handled by the web server and the requested data is sent as a reply. If Varnish is activated, it caches the web pages that the site visitor browses and in case any of them is loaded for a second time, it is delivered by Varnish and not by the server directly. The performance boost comes from the fact that the accelerator handles the browser requests substantially quicker than any web server, which results in much faster browsing speeds for the users. In case any content is updated meanwhile, the cached webpages will also be ‘refreshed’ the next time somebody attempts to access them.

Varnish in Web Hosting

Varnish comes as an optional upgrade with each of our web hosting. You can add it to your website hosting account from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting plans and you will get a truly easy-to-work-with GUI, which will give you full control over the caching platform. Using 1-click quick-access controls, you can reboot or shut down any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer work for a certain website. You can also see a comprehensive system log or delete the cache for any of the sites. When you add Varnish to your hosting package, you will be able to choose the maximum amount of memory that will be available to you for caching purposes and the number of the sites that will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for optimum performance, you can get a dedicated IP for the sites that will use Varnish. This will permit you to take full advantage of your sites and to have many gratified site visitors.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated servers include Varnish by default, so you can make full use of the website accelerator tool and optimize the loading speed of any site that you host on our platform. You’ll get 64 megabytes of system memory exclusively for Varnish at no extra fee and you’ll be able to enable an instance with no more than a few clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with the semi-dedicated server plans. In case you want more memory, the latter is offered in increments of 32 MB through the Control Panel’s Upgrades section and it will be at your disposal immediately. You can also order more instances as a separate upgrade, so you can choose whether plenty of content will be cached for a single website or whether the memory will be used by multiple Internet sites. Hepsia will enable you to reboot or to terminate any instance, to see the system log for it or to clear the cached content using 1-click buttons. To get the most out of Varnish, you can assign a dedicated IP to the websites that will employ it.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can take advantage of Varnish with each of our VPS server packages at no extra charge, since the platform is pre-installed and is included by default. The sole condition is that the virtual machine must come with the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you will be able to set up Varnish for any of your Internet sites with just a few clicks. Each package features a different amount of memory for caching purposes, but you will have minimum several hundred megabytes, which is sufficient even for multiple traffic-intensive sites. Shortly after you activate Varnish, it’ll begin caching the content that your visitors request, so you’ll notice the significantly better webpage loading times and the less load in no time. The Varnish caching platform will allow you to use a less costly VPS, since you won’t require that much power to ensure the uninterrupted operation of your Internet sites even if you have heavy-traffic websites with plenty of visitors. Optimal results are achieved if the sites that use Varnish use also a dedicated IP address.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

If you want the most powerful hosting solution and you order any of the dedicated servers that we’re offering, you’ll be able to use Varnish to boost the work of your sites at no extra fee as long as the dedicated server is ordered with our leading-edge Hepsia Control Panel. Its simple-to-use GUI will enable you to monitor platform processes, to delete the cached content or to reboot any instance with a click. The smallest amount of memory that the Varnish platform can employ to cache website content is three gigabytes, which is more than enough for a large number of repeatedly visited Internet sites, so your server will be able to cope with an enormous system load while your visitors are having a seamless browsing experience. As your server will come with several different dedicated IPs, you will be able to make use of Varnish’s maximum potential.
